Seattle Mom Blogger Lyndsey WellsHi, I’m Lyndsey! I’m the newest writer at MiscFinds4u and wanted to say an official hello.

Seattle Mom Blogger

I grew up in southern California but have lived in Seattle for two years — getting used to our lovely gray weather has been a bit of an adjustment, but I almost don’t mind it anymore since we have such beautiful lakes and green trees in exchange for the rain! I married my cute college sweetheart and we just had our second baby. My little family and I spend our weekends seeking out the best adventures (and food ;)) Washington has to offer.

By day, I’m a full-time mama with a public relations consulting business on the side. In my pre-kid life I did PR for companies like Toyota, Yamaha, American Crafts and luxury hotels, traveling around the country to work with journalists and plan publicity events. But, once my first son arrived, I decided to take my show on the freelance road and Kismet Public Relations was born. Now, I help beginner bloggers and small businesses promote themselves via social networking and traditional media.

Seattle Blogger Network

By night, I’m a blogger too! I started The Stationery Place in 2009 to document my love for beautiful paper products and crafts. I also run a meetup group where Seattle bloggers can share ideas and get together in real life for face-to-face collaboration and networking. In my (very limited) free time, I love to run, watch movies with my husband, try out new desserts and read blogs.

And, best of all, I have two little boys who I’m sure you’ll be hearing all about in my blog posts. Jack just turned three and loves all things boy — football, Thomas the Train and Hot Wheels are his current faves. Hudson was born in June 2013 and is already the cutest, sweetest baby; so far, he doesn’t seem to mind his big brother’s over-exuberant kisses or the occasional hit from a flying plastic basketball.

I can’t wait to share my favorite baby, kid and mama finds, and to hear about you too! Hope we can create some beautiful online friendships here on the blog. 🙂
